    If you are going to Jailbreak you ipad its actualy better if you do it now.

    When you jailbreak the blob codes for your device get backed up to cydia.

    When a new version of the iOS is released apple stops handing out blobs for older iOS versions.

    This means if you JB now and lets say apple does something in the next iOS to prevent Jailbreaking. You can always downgrade to a version that is able to be jailbroken if you have the blobs backed up.

    I'm in the same position, even though my iPad's not arrived yet I'm deciding if I should JB or not. I had a iPod touch 1G and Jailbroke that at the start, but that was only because it had just came out and there was no app store. Now, I'm thinking I will just wait.. as it is I haven't used iOS for over a year so there's probably enough to keep me satisfied until iOS 4

    Yeah, I only have a few JB apps on my iPad, and didnt jb my iPhone 3gs like I did with my 3G. Not a whole lot on the side of JB vs not JB. The JB apps I use are more of just for connivance than anything else. SBSettings for changing settings quickly without launching the settings app.

    Do it! If you don't like it, restore. If you don't try it, how will you know?

    IMO, people only want flash because they know they can't get it. Not as big an issue as everyone is making it out to be I think.
